Step 1: guyの発音の仕方 | Pronunciation

Step 2: 語源 | The Word Origin

This word, “guy” is derived from Old French “guier.”

It means “a rope, chain, or rod attached to anything to steady it.”


Also, Guillam (French for William) was a very common name that it became synonyms with the average man.



The modern meaning of “a person of strange looks or dress” is derived from “Guy Fawkes” who was involved in a plot to blow up Westminster Palace in England on November 5th in 1605. Since then, the English have burned an effigy of him on Bonfire Night.

Note: “blow up” means “to burst forth with sudden violence and noise.”

*「blow up」の意味は、「爆破する」。

Note: “effigy” means “the image, likeness, or representation of a person, whether a full figure, or a part: an imitative figure.”


現代の「怪しい外見の人物」という意味は、「Guy Fawkes」という人物が起こした事件が由来となっています。彼は、1605年の12月5日にイギリスのウェストミンスター寺院を爆破しようとしてしまいました。その時以来、イギリスではその夜に焚火でその人の肖像画を焼くという風習が行われて来ました。
